Heart Month & Health Goals

Healthy-HeartFebruary is American Heart Month, the month in which we’re reminded of the importance of checking our blood pressure and nagging our loved ones to do the same. But it’s not just blood pressure that affects one’s heart health, though it is the number one predictor of heart attack and stroke.

To quote the American Heart Association,

“Know your health numbers.”

If one’s blood pressure is in the hypertensive range, they should set a goal of lowering it to the normal range. The same goes for cholesterol, blood sugar and body weight. Take control of your health! Decide what, if any, changes must be made to get your numbers into a healthy range for you.

  • Do you need to eat healthier and ditch the junk?
  • Do you need to exercise more?
  • Do you need to get more sleep?
  • Do you need to relax and socialize more?

All of these things have been shown to affect one’s blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels, as well as weight. Whatever one must do to get their numbers back into the normal range, now is the time to focus on the goal of improving overall health and achieving a sense of well-being. The time for self-care is always now, today. Never wait.
